Child Inclusive Practice Forum 2019

Child Inclusive Practice Forum 2019

The 2019 Child Inclusive Practice (CIP) Forum Rebuilding, Restoration and Renovation, acknowledges family breakdown is not a finite concept. Reflecting this our speakers will cover wide ranging topics to enrich the practice of Child and Family Therapists, Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners, Family Law and Childhood Specialists.

The CIP Forum will be held 3-5 June 2019, at DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin, Northern Territory.

 

Call for Abstracts*
(Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Stream)

* This call is open to abstracts which focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. We strongly encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners and/or organisations to submit.

This year’s Child Inclusive Practice Forum theme is ‘Rebuilding, Restoration and Renovation’. The theme acknowledges that family breakdown is not the end of the road.  Family relationships – between both parents, parents and children, and the children themselves, will morph and change over time.  Child Inclusive Practice is the foundation for working with families to make sure children’s views and opinions are actively heard and listened to, and carefully translated into all decision making forums concerning them. The Forum program will deliver an abundance of ideas and practical skills that practitioners can add to their ‘toolkit’ to support best practices in child inclusion.

The Forum committee invites abstracts for presentations from all professional domains that promote child consultation and ensure the experience of the child is central in practice.  A limited number of concurrent sessions will be offered for a 30 or 60 minute verbal presentation (including question time).
